Does Google's Larry Page care about social networking?  —  We saw the publication of two lengthy articles this week about Larry Page, who is scheduled to take over as Google's chief executive on April 4.  After I read them, one big question lingered: What does his takeover mean for Google's long-rumored Facebook competitor?
